    The Story

    This is the end of our 10-part series on Dating Ring. And in this episode, we find out what Dating Ring looks like today as a lifestyle company. Lauren and Emma sit down with Alex to talk about lessons learned, what they wish they’d known about starting a dating business, and and what it is really like when your startup is under a microscope. And we tell a love story, one we have been excited to share all season.

However, he’s here today because of his (and all joking aside) amazing insight into, advice about, and dissection of the areas of productivity, motivation, and, well, just trying to get there. As he tackles our listeners' questions (as well as our own), we get a couple hours of some classic Merlin-Mann-ing.
